Help has arrived.

Is that anything like a chastity belt?

Now we can make fun of them for wearing garter belts.

Larry King no longer needs all those suspenders.

I'm glad they're giving young reprobates a means to keep their pants hanging down. I get endless amusement watching them try to run from the police. It's especially fun when they try to vault a cyclone fence.

edgars's sock garter?

I had an idea for an all-in-one jockeys and low-slung pants (Pants on the Ground), until I realized that the reason they wear the boxers is that so when they are running from police, they can take off their pants and say, "Whadn't me, sir! I have shorts on!" Tall fat people should search the area for free pants after the nimrod goes to jail.

"...will help bridge the gap between saggers who want to express themselves through fashion and critics who say the trend shows off underwear and looks unprofessional."

And who could possibly think that sagging pants are unprofessional?

I have an infrequently-used condo near Clearwater, FL. Looking around at the residents, many of them elderly, I can attest that sagging is a problem there as well...

I usually just tell them how the trend of saggy pants got started. It's amazing how many of them pull their pants up after that.

I've done the same nc, butt it doesn't seem to do any good.

Prison garter. Bruno will think it's so sexy.

I'm afraid to ask how this trend started.

Heh. My young grandson just started the "yo", "hizzle-fizzle" crap, and had the temerity to try to orchestrate the baggy pants "fashion statement."

He is a good kid and tends to listen to what I explain to him. I pointed out that he is a kid coming from an affluent, upper-middle class family, which had no history of family members being in jail dereft of belts to keep their pants up. That he was not, nor would ever be, a gang-banger from the ghetto. So give it up, already!!!!

His response: "Oh". He pulled up his pants and attitude forthwith.

My daughter (his mother) is grateful and clearly owes me one. Heh.
